Caffè Cagliari’s collection “The Coffee Machines” boasts more than 80 specimens of espresso machines, of great historical and stylistic value: from the early steam-power column-shaped coffee machines of the period 1908-1940 to the manual lever or piston system coffee machine models of the post-war period, up to the first continuous supply models produced in the 1960s and 1970s.
The catalog “Espresso! The Coffee Machines” presents a comprehensive overview of the collection with technical descriptions and pictures of each machine, enhanced by vintage illustrations and advertising brochures. A perfect synthesis of the history of Espresso, one of the most famous Italian products in the world.
